The Swiss Positive Gold fund provides clients with access to traceable physical gold and bullion certified by the Swiss Better Gold Association (SBGA). With this new fund, PPT aims at extending its Buy&Care philosophy to the precious metals asset class and thus promote environmentally and socially conscious gold mining and refining.
The jewellery sector has understood the ESG issue in the gold value chain and its potential reputational impact. For the time being, the financial markets have not participated in this movement due to a lack of suitable vehicles. The Swiss Positive Gold fund fills this gap by offering a 100% Swiss vehicle that combines a segregated deposit with Bank Pictet, sourcing with the Swiss refiner MKS, management by PPT and technical and social assistance from the Swiss Better Gold Association (SBGA).
